dry, the morning commute wet across most of the metro area. here's why. by midnight tonight we see showers and rain from gaithersburg to manassas essentially through most of the metro area, a little break and then more showers over into calvert county and st. mary's county. we'll put this into motion. by 4:45, 5:00 in the morning it's raining or showering everywhere. most of it's light, a little yellow activity around culpeper. we'll put this back into motion and then by 9:00 we're getting the back edge of the precipitation, so still showers into southern maryland but good news. tomorrow afternoon we clear out and actually have a pretty nice afternoon as temperatures fall a bit but drier air moves in. next three days, our 9 weather alerts, yellow tomorrow because of the morning showers 52, nice but chilly wednesday 50, nice but cool thursday, 53. next seven days we'll finish the week nice, cooler, but 54 friday and saturday, nice for the terps game. right now for the redskins they are home against the eagles, looks like some rain and temperatures only in the 40s.
